Water Quality


Non-point Source Pollution
Water quality is important to all citizens in Indiana. Non-point source agricultural pollutants in Indiana can result from animal-waste handling and disposal, application of nutrients (both animal waste and manufactured products), the application of pesticides, and the movement of soil particles. Impacts from any and all of these pollutants occur in both surface and groundwater.
